Allmendinger Out Of No. 84 This Week
AJ Allmendinger will be replaced in Red Bull Racing’s No. 84 starting at Tallaedga Superspeedway this week. It was announced earlier that Allmendinger would be leaving at the end of the season. Allmendinger expected to be released early.
Mike Skinner will assume driving duties at this week’s Amp Energy 500. He will also pilot the No. 84 at the Bank of America 500 from Lowe’s Motor Speedway.
Scott Speed will drive the No. 82 for RBR at the Bank of America 500. After that, he will finish out the season in the No. 84, starting at the TUMS QuikPak 500 from Martinsville Speedway. He’s the likely candidate to be in the car next season, though, I’m not sure it has been announced.
